We’re halfway through 2013 and our Best Stocks for 2013 Buy List on InvestorPlace.com has had plenty of time to shake out.
The good news: Three InvestorPlace contributors including myself, Louis Navellier and Charles Sizemore, are in the top three spots with market-beating returns.
The bad news: As a whole, the list itself is underperforming – including one pick 34% in the red.
As for the winners, paint manufacturer Sherwin Williams (SHW), automaker Daimler (DDAIF) and semiconductor stock Intel (INTC), they happen to share one commonality: an unpopularity several months ago that has been replaced by turnaround hopes and optimism. The reasons are different, but the themes are the same.
Watch or listen in above to get complete details from me and Charles on our picks and the outlook for the next few months.
